Notre Dame Football: Promoting Declan Sullivan's Legacy More Important Than Firing Those Responsible

Nobody at Notre Dame will lose their job over the death of student Declan Sullivan, allowing them to lead the way in keeping everyone safe during practices.

Probe of student's death contradicts ND's story - chicagotribune.com

I am not surprised one bit if ND stonewalled in this investigation... Here is the money quote: The university allowed OSHA to view the team’s practice footage, but it did not turn over the tapes because Notre Dame lawyers said it contained "highly proprietary, trade secret information related to the business of college sports," documents show. Disgusting! To hide behind the notion that the tapes requested by OSHA contained 'highly proprietary trade secret information' is laughable at best, and reprehensible at worst. This isn't National Security Agency here it's just freakin' football and it cost a kid his life. Unreal!

Notre Dame Student Dies, But Swarbrick, Kelly Won't 'Man Up' And Take Responsibility

Big-time college football is a tough-guy sport. But when faced with responsibility for a tragic event, the coach and athletic director at Notre Dame weaseled out and made excuses.

Video assistant speaks about ND tragedy, safety

Self-shared interview with a film assistant--one with responsibilities that are awfully similar to the victim of the Notre Dame tragedy, Declan Sullivan--about the nature of safety in his job and his relationship with coaches. This is really eye-opening stuff. It's not a hit piece and it's not a call for sweeping reform, but I think it helps why Declan got into that lift on Wednesday, against all of his better judgment. Every question was asked for a reason, and every answer helps us understand this tragedy.
